Art and a Winter Garden Party

Snow turned Chelsea into a veritable winter wonderland last week; perfectly timed for The Phene’s Winter Garden Party. Admittedly as I ran on the treadmill at The Chelsea Sport’s Centre and looked out of the window to see the harsh weather,…

Chili Martini at Sophie’s Steakhouse

The Chili Martini at Sophie’s Steakhouse is easily one of my favourite cocktails in Chelsea. It’s so good that at the end of the night when all the other foodies are paying their bill, I have to order just one more…

World’s End

The other day, I popped into Vivienne Westwood’s shop on the King’s Road to browse the handbags. Oversized and textured, colourful and rebellious, the latest collection is a true feast for the edgy. This shop that once confused me as…

The Botanist

The Chelsea Flower show may be a long distant memory especially now it is autumn. But that doesn’t mean Chelsea is a barren land. Take The Botanist on Sloane Square. Most nights are guaranteed to be buzzy with a crowd…
